    Too bad it doesn't come with tort. Would sound great with flats.

    Poland Spring got it right the first time.

    We are almost a day into this thread and no one has commented on how good tubes sound...

  7. Well, the one guy's stick obviously sounds better because it has a tube in it..

    Yeah but it sounds a little hollow to me.

  9. That's just the midscoop that it gets from the tort and the tone-wood.

    Good point. Some flats should mellow it out.

    You think it would be OK to put a fender logo on this?

  11. Since it has tort and flats, you have to put the Fender logo on it to activate the tone-wood..otherwise, it's just a jazz bass and not for metal.

    Looks like a Krappy in a jug.

    I've got a Krappy "upright":
